It's addressable!!! I also keep emphasizing that Raijintek is a company you should keep an eye on. There isn't much we can add to on the CWB-RGB CPU Block cooling without testing, but the light ring around the edge, as well as the light rings around the ports, looks fantastic.
My quest for the perfect price/features monitor isn't over yet, but I found another intriguing entry that's worth taking a look at. A Japan based company named iiyama has a 32" curved monitor that also has a VA panel, and a 144 Hz, FreeSync refresh range. The listed price is only $377, which is fantastic!
The Panzer Evo RGB makes a statement that says it's trying to lead the case market, rather than merely joining it. Cougar has an excellent looking design with tons of features, including tons of building space and great RGB lighting. The price seems excellent for the amount of features.
The first 4K gaming monitor is finally about to become reality from Acer, though it has a serious price tag to match. It's more or less the same story as the 1440P monitors when they first launched with their high refresh rates and notably high price to match their performance.
Newegg has a sale on an enterprise level NVMe SSD that ends up being cheaper than a lot of SATA SSDs with the same capacity. Some performance numbers can be a tad slower than expected, but the sequential read and write speeds can make this an excellent games drive.
Adata is about to shake up memory cooling with their latest design in the Spectrix D80. These RAM kits come with a sealed liquid that boils at low temperatures, helping cool the modules more efficiently in theory than a typical heat spreader. Overclock away!
I could tell you about the 3000 MHz speed, or the 15-17-17-15(?) timings, or the XMP 2.0 profile, but there's only one thing that really matters here. Glowing Snake Eyes!!! That's right, the eyes on the Viper logos actually glow on this DDR4 RAM! You have to admit that's pretty awesome right?
This guide will hopefully help you find the perfect gaming monitor. Size, refresh range, adaptive sync, price, and features like HDR are all part of a great viewing experience. The perfect monitor doesn't exist yet, but MSI, Samsung, ViewSonic, Asus and Sceptre have some close ones. Maybe a perfect one will exist soon!
Patriot is giving the world what they desperately need with the Trinity 3-in-1 USB Drive. With a variety of capacities, you can use this with standard USB ports, Type C ports, and even micro USB ports. This is a lifesaver for people who need a versatile storage device.
Using the new Sterrox material, Noctua is designing one fan to rule every application. The NF-A12x25 series is supposed to have the static pressure of radiator fans, but airflow of case fans. It's a great cooling combination and the NA-SFMA1 Adapter Frame allows for installation on 140mm spaces as well.
Drevo has the BladeMaster Mechanical Gaming Keyboard on a Kickstarter campaign, and they destroyed their goal in the period of about a day. Sure, it's a nice peripheral, but how does a Genius-Knob make it the Ultimate gaming keyboard? It must be doing something right.
AMD announced the new Combat Crate to help with the cost of graphics cards. The included Ryzen 1600 CPU, MSI Motherboard, and RX 580 seems like a decent deal. After adding up the individual components though, there isn't a ton of savings happening. Especially since the crypto mining craze seems to be dying down.
UL Benchmarks (formerly Futuremark, same benchmarks) is having a massive 75% off sale on 3DMark, VRMark, and PCMark 10. Quite frankly, that's an awesome sale! Check out the links below since you only have until the 30th to take advantage of these deals on Steam.
AMD had officially stated that if you use any CPU cooler other than their included ones, you will void your Ryzen processor warranty completely. However, they quickly updated their page and now shows that aftermarket coolers, if properly used and installed, will not void a warranty. Whew!
The release and reviews of the Ryzen 2000 series has been an up and down day. At first I was excited, then I felt like overclocking was going to be gone, then I had an epiphany. AMD probably revolutionized the way overclockers benefit from it!
